We are divided and divided we fell. Bernie supporters disenfranchised, women feeling objectified and let down as a pantsuit nation for Hillary, and people feeling like you have to wait your turn in a party in order to have a chance at winning.
I chose to leave the 2 party system in pursuit of something more. I am tired of my vote being taken for granted. I am liberal so the expected vote is Democrat. There are other options and choices with strong viable candidates and progressive platforms. I support a multi-party system with proportional representation and RCV (rank choice voting) supports that model at the local level because it creates a foundation for a level playing field.
For me, I chose Green because they put people first and that is how local nonpartisan politics should be.
